Humphreys off to slow start at Virginia Nationals
RaceRedi Pontiac 17th after opening day

Dinwiddie/Richmond, Oct.10, 2008 -- At many other stops on the NHRA POWERade Series trail, an elapsed time of 6.628 seconds would have been good enough to put Justin Humphreys solidly in the top 16 Pro Stock entries. That wasn't the case Friday as the Virginia Nationals got underway at Virginia Motorsports Park.

"We're struggling right now," Humphreys said of the RaceRedi Pontiac GXP's performance. "There's definitely something wrong somewhere, and we have to find it by Saturday." His other run was 6.646 seconds.

VMP is less than two hours from Humphreys' home in Monrovia, Md. and he certainly wants to be in the 16-car line-up.

"Frank (Gugliotta, team crew chief) and the guys will be looking for answers to why it won't go quicker," added Humphreys.

He has two more opportunities.
